Introducing the ‘MyED’ App to Improve Home/School Communication

As part of our drive to improve home/school communication we will be shortly introducing a new way to communicate and share information with our parent/carer community. We want parents/carers to feel as much a part of their child’s education as possible and by utilising smart phone technology we are now able to do that. MyEd is the free parent app that gives you a multitude of communication and information features to stay in touch with what is going on at school. The app gives you direct access to your child's

  • Attendance
  • Timetable
  • Absence records
  • Achievements
  • Behaviour
  • You will also see that we update and change the information in the app as the school year moves along.

We are able to send you messages directly to the MyEd app relating to important information about your child's education and to remind you of events that are taking place at school.  You will receive a notification if we send you a message and there is no charge for the messages you send to us.  The MyEd app is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices and can be found by following the instructions below:

Step 1 - Go to your App Store

Step 2 - Search for My Ed

Step 3 - Download the Free app

Once you have installed and opened MyEd, search for Beckfoot Thornton and follow the simple instructions to identify yourself. We hope you enjoy using the app and find it a useful source of information.  We will be fully utilising the App from 16th October so please download the App before this date.  After the 16th October the MyEd App will replace our “Learning Gateway” system.
